EP3 - Claudia Holzinger
In this episode, Sandra and Dilum have a nice little chit-chat with Claudia Holzinger. Claudia’s work immediately captured their eyes by the campy and honest attitude that was clear in her photographic work. Examining different aspects of her goofy personality, she shows herself at her best; wether it is in the form of her father in an FC Bayern tracksuit or dressed up in costumes she ordered of Amazon. Her work will also be shown in the show “Beauty/?”. The video-interview is also available on YouTube. ------ Sandra Meilunaite and Dilum Coppens are two Brussels-based artists, working together in their chilly studio.
